THE NEW MASTERS' HOUSES IN DESSAU / Edition Bauhaus 46 by Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau

「EDITION BAUHAUS」シリーズ第46作。1945年初めにデッサウ市は国空軍の爆撃を受け、その際に「Director’s House」とモホリ=ナジ・ラースロー(Moholy-Nagy László)の「Master House」も瓦礫に帰した。20世紀のアーティストコロニーの典型であるデッサウの「Masters’ Houses」が1990年代に元の状態に復元されると、戦争で破壊された2つの建物の再建についても議論されるようになった。イギリスの建築界のスーパースター、デイヴィッド・チッパーフィールド(David Chipperfield)との協議が行われた後、以前と完全に同じではなくむしろ現代的な手法を使ってヴァルター・グロピウス(Walter Gropius)とモホリ=ナジの「Master Houses」を再現する決定が2010年になされた。こうして、ベルリンの建築事務所ブルーノ・フィオレッティ・マルケス(Bruno-Fioretti-Marquez)の設計に基づき、オリジナルの建物を革新的な方法で変形・抽象化した形で建物は再建された。この再建された建物が書籍となるのは本作が初めてであり、デッサウのMasters’ Housesの波乱万丈な歴史を紹介する写真は、イタリア人フォトグラファーのアーミン・リンケ(Armin Linke)とドイツ人アーティストのハイディ・シュペッカー(Heidi Specker)が担当した。

When Dessau was bombed in early 1945, the Director’s House and Moholy-Nagy’s Master House were reduced to rubble as well. After the Dessau Masters’ Houses – epitome of the 20th-century artists’ colony – had been restored to their original state in the 1990s, a debate began on the reconstruction of the two houses destroyed in the war. In 2010, after consultation with the British star architect David Chipperfield, the decision was made to recreate the Master Houses of Gropius and Moholy-Nagy using contemporary means, rather than rebuilding them 1:1. And so they have now been reconstructed on the basis of designs by the Berlin firm Bruno-Fioretti-Marquez, as innovative reductions and abstractions of the original houses. This volume describes the chequered history of the Dessau Masters’ Houses, presenting the reconstructed buildings for the first time in book form, with photographs by Armin Linke and Heidi Specker.
